Fallout 4 Wasteland Workshop Trailer Teases Gladiator Style Creature Combat, Are You Not Entertained?

Fallout 4 Wasteland Workshop

We all have our ways of dealing with the end of the world. For Henry Bemis, the apocalypse presented him with an opportunity to read all the books he ever wanted without interruption, an opportunity he squandered by stepping on his glasses. For others, it might be capturing creatures from the wasteland and then forcing settlers to fight them in a makeshift arena, as we see in a new trailer for Fallout 4's Wasteland Workshop DLC.

That alone is likely to make the forthcoming add-on worth the $5 asking price—you'd have a tough time escaping Starbucks without spending more than that. What Bethesda's offering isn't an overpriced coffee, however, it's the opportunity take delight in ways that only the apocalypse can afford. As the trailers says, "Capturing [creatures] is fun, but letting them out? Hell yeah! That's right, entertain me."

From what we can tell, there's no plot to speak of in Wasteland Workshop, the second of three planned add-ons for Fallout 4. It's about giving you more to play with. With the Wasteland Workshop DLC, you can design and set cages to capture live creatures like Deathclaws. You also get more items and options to spice up your settlements with things like nixie tube lighting, taxidermy (keep enemies as trophies), letter kits, and more.

Wasteland Workshop is the least expensive of the three add-ons, coming in at half the price of Automatron, the first bit of DLC that was released last month. This one will debut to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on April 12, followed by Far Harbor ($25) in May. Why the price disparity? Far Harbor is supposed to be the biggest DLC Bethesda will have put out for any game, including Oblivion.
